Portrait Couleurs
Hello, my name is Imke Heine!

I'm a German researcher and illustrator.

In July 2023, I finished my studies in French literature and culture. Since October 2023 I've been working as a research assistant at the Technical University of Dresden with the aim of preparing a dissertation.

My areas of interest are comics studies, postcolonial studies (particularly French Indochina), spatial studies, hybridity and multiculturalism, migration and identity.

In my spare time, I make illustrations, some of which you can find on this website or on my instagram. I've already done drawings for book covers, posters, a band t-shirt and a website. My favourite techniques include watercolour, collage and digital drawing.

As this is a hobby and not my main job, my capacity of dealing with requests is limited. Unfortunately I don't always have the time.
